Hager to back Strasbourg’s Europa League campaign

Hager Group has expanded its partnership with French Ligue 1 football club RC Strasbourg by agreeing to be its shirt sponsor during the 2019-20 Uefa Europa League competition.

Hager, a supplier of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, commercial and industrial buildings, has served as a co-main sponsor of Strasbourg since 2017-18 with its brand first appearing on the front of the club’s shirts in the Coupe de la Ligue.

Strasbourg has qualified for the Europa League in 2019-20 by winning the Coupe de la Ligue last season and Hager will follow its progress in Europe.

With 19 production sites, including three in the Alsace region of France, Europe is the company’s largest market.
